The Surrey Storm 01A fastpitch team after their national championship win in Victoria.

SURREY — Members of the Surrey Storm 01A team were all smiles after winning the 2015 U14 Girls Canadian Fastpitch Jamboree in Victoria on Aug. 9, following an extra-innings 2-1 victory over rival Delta Heat 01.

The two teams also battled in the finals of the recent provincial championships, with the Storm winning 4-0.

In Victoria, the Storm won all nine games they played over the five-day tournament, with six of the nine ending in a “mercy” win for runs scored.

“This is a very good team, very dominant,” Storm manager Jill Moreno told the Now.

“People expected us to win, and we did.”

During their 101-game season, which began in April, the Storm won 81 games, tied 17 and lost three.

The Storm roster includes Emma Moreno, Alex Ebeling, Jaylin Chan, Kianna Jones, Grace Messmer, Mya Sousa, Rachel Drewitt, Samantha Costello, Isabella Lopes, Hayley Grice, Lexus Vaughan and Bree Nakano. The coaches are Mark Riske, Leah Riske, Hayley Bettles, Kelsey Haberl and Sara Riske.

Also on Aug. 9, the Surrey Storm 01B team won the Western Canadian softball championship in Winnipeg with a 5-0 win over Twin City Angels.
